My fall planting is going ok so far.
I planted carrots, 3 different kinds of lettuce, radishes and beets.
I planted some peas but only a few came up so I planted more in those boxes and then planted some peas in another 2 boxes. I planted bush beans but only 1 plant came up. I planted spinach and again only some came up so it still might be too warm for them. So I will reseed in a week or two if needed.
My tomatoes are still producing and also my pole beans and peppers.
I hope all is well with everyone!

We planted carrots early summer and they seemed to take a looooooooong time. I never even thought of planting them for Fall. When do you plan to harvest them?

Hi Renee:

I did plant them late - Aug 19th since it was so hot here, so I am taking a chance. It takes 75 days to maturity which will be around Nov 1st. Since I had alot of carrot seeds I thought why not try - hopefully I won't be disappointed. Very Happy

Awesome! Our lettuce is coming up and I've let some of my first year strawberry runners replant themselves.

I took advantage of the fall seed special from Jung and my garden (outside)is planted. I started some seeds for my first time green house this year and see if I can have a nice salad on Christmas. My greenhouse is 6' x 8'. The temps are running around 110 degrees with the vents and door open when the sun is shinning. Wow. Just had some lettuce, tomatoes while checking my garden. Yum!

I've sown my carrots three times, and have only a handful of plants that germinated. Today I broke down and went and bought some fresh seed. Not the variety I wanted, but maybe it'll germinate. Beets also germinated poorly, so I dumped a good half ounce of seed on the bed. We'll see if I can get a stand, now that it's cooler. I had already set out some cauliflower and cabbage that I started earlier. But the broccoli I started also did not germinate - probably too hot, so I broke down and bought some started plants. They are all in the ground now - and with rain forecast tomorrow, all should get established OK. The tomatoes I planted in buckets are now getting ready to blossom, and I'm starting to see some female blossoms on my Caribbean squash. Fall okra is starting to produce as well. Peppers are still producing well. Have set out a lot of onions. Fall sweet corn is about two feet tall. Hoping for a good fall/winter garden!

I thought okra needed "hot" weather"? Ours is still producing like crazy but now that it's cooling down I suspect they will slow. There is a fall okra?? thinking

I planted these in late July. We normally get okra right up to frost, which can occur in late October to mid-December, but typically comes around mid to late November.

My thinking is that okra loves heat, but can still bear in cooler weather, if already established.
